2019-2018 House Cup Schedule Outline

Recommended Posts


This topic is to provide an OVERVIEW/OUTLINE of the intended schedule.  It makes no promise of precise dates, and it is subject to change if necessary.

Length and Structure:  Just like last year, the 2018-2019 House Cup will run from September 2018 to August 2019.  The year has been broken up into four (northern hemisphere) seasons:  fall/autumn (September, October, November), winter (December, January, February), spring (March, April, May), and summer (June, July, August).

Monthly/Regular Items:  Various monthly/regular items, such as Story of the Month, Forum Head Student, and Archive Head Student, will occur.

Writing Events:  This year, rather than a short-duration staff writing challenge in the spring, we are replacing it with a 6-month collaboration. Prefects still will hold a couple of challenges, so be sure to keep an eye out for those! They are worth more points than member challenges. We've listed them as tentative on this schedule because we are giving them the opportunity to replace a couple with small events instead, or to make a judgement call if things seem too busy around the site.
